Lake Bridgeport Fishing Reports

 

Lake Bridgeport Fishing Report from TPWD (Apr. 17)

GOOD. Water stained; 64 degrees; 14.81 feet below pool. The Wise County Park and U.S. Route 380 low water ramps remain the best bet for launching. Water is slightly stained with temps in the low to mid 60s. Crappie have been hit-or-miss. There are reports of fish being caught around the marinas on the north and south ends, minnows and jigs are the best bet. Sand bass and hybrids are nearing the end of their spawn. They are slowly returning to the main lake and feeding heavily. Gulls and shorebirds may point the way to the fish. Slabs and swimbaits have been productive. Largemouth bass are also close to finishing their spawn. Some fish are still on beds with some post spawn fish starting to show up as well. Lizards, jigs, flat billed cranks and spinnerbaits have been putting fish in the boat. Blue catfish have been active around main lake humps and shallow cover. Cut Shad is the bait of choice. Report by Keith Bunch, Lake Bridgeport Guide Service.
